Gerhard Richter’s artist's book Sindbad is dedicated to his series of reverse glass paintings of the same name. Here, the paintings are brought together with the story Sinbad the Sailor from Arabian Nights.

The abstract colour creations of the Sinbad series were originally arranged in pairs and the pattern is replicated with the images displayed in the book. Also, the size of the book corresponds to that of the original paintings, 30 x 24 cm. The high-gloss illustrations that recall the quality of the reverse glass paintings are interrupted by texts describing the voyages of Sinbad in regular intervals. The story’s introduction forms part of the book’s cover, as a partial sleeve.

When Gerhard Richter designed the book, he left the binding and the cardboard visible but completed it with a high-gloss sleeve that shows a modified detail from the Sinbad series.
